In (24) we may, of course, replace sin 6 by cos 6 throughout.    If both sin 6 and cos 0 occur, as in

where n and m are even, we may express cosm 0 by means of sin 0, and so reduce (26) to integrals of the form (24). The particular case where m = n is worthy of notice. Here

A comparison of the two treatments gives a relation between the integrals //. Thus, if n = 4,
